Sonnets for Christian Toddlers: A Year of Devotion by jay t harding ~ Available Thanksgiving 2015
When Jesus read God’s words Isaiah wrote
The scripture was fulfilled complete that day.
His very life that passage would promote,
And His disciples now the same convey.
The Savior came to save those lost in sin,
And in His name prepare them for the same,
To preach the gospel to the poor within
And set at liberty the bruised and lame.
The follower of Jesus does the work
He is anointed by the Lord to do.
There is no time to dawdle or to shirk;
The harvest is abundant, workers few.
Fulfill that scripture, too, with all your heart;
Let Jesus move within you from the start.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor;
he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted,
to preach deliverance to the captives,
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty them that are bruised,
To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Luke 4:18,19 KJV (Isaiah 61:1,2)
